ID TECH Releases VP8300, the All-new MSR, EMV Smart Card and Contactless Payment Reader

The VP8300s smart, refreshed design gives retailers a new way to look at EMV Smart Card and Contactless Readers

Cypress, CA, March 20, 2018 ID TECH, a global leader in secure payment solutions, has announced the release of VP8300. It packs the latest innovations in secure payment acceptance with a new and exciting form factor built for the retail countertop space. The VP8300s design, weight and simple connectivity, via standard USB, is the perfect solution for a consumer facing payment peripheral. The VP8300 incorporates triple-track MagStripe, EMV smart card, and EMV contactless secure payment technologies such as MasterCard PayPass, Visa VCPS, Visa QuickChip, M/Chip Fast from MasterCard, American Express ExpressPay, Discover DPAS, Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, Sony FeliCa M+, and more.

Designed for the countertop the VP8300 includes a full suite of features and technologies accumulated from ID TECH’s 30 years of experience in the secure payment industry.

The VP8300 is an MSR, contact and contactless EMV Level 1 and Level 2 approved. The VP8300 also uses DUKPT key management with TDES/AES encryption algorithms embedded in ID TECHs proprietary EMV security kernel. This ensures all magnetic stripe, smart card, and contactless transactions are securely encrypted before data is transmitted to the host device, regardless of the communication interface.

Developers and integrators will appreciate the VP8300’s user friendly yet powerful Universal SDK, with Demo function that is fully compatible with iOS, Windows, and Android platforms, said Vince Steffano, Product Manager at ID TECH. The SDK greatly simplifies integration and certification for partners looking to migrate to EMV in a countertop environment.

VP8300 is the latest addition to ID TECH Common EMV Kernel Family of products, allowing partners who have integrated other ID TECH payment solutions to quickly adopt ID TECHs latest countertop solution under existing certifications.
